In 2012, we instituted our CHF Fellows Program, comprised of subject matter experts who conduct primary research, issue reports and make presentations on behalf of the Center.
Fellows of the highest quality are sought from leading institutions, businesses and think tanks from across the nation.Their research relates to selected indicators, emphasizing their relational aspects to sustainability and competitiveness and how they may affect the long-term future of the greater Houston region.
The Academic Advisory Panel is comprised of nationally known and highly respected experts—from academia, foundations, think tanks and research institutions .The panel is designed to elevate and ensure the academic integrity of the Community Indicator Report.
We have gathered some of the best minds in the medical, health, technology and research communities to examine the state of people and place in the Houston eight-county region.Several working committees or ‘data groups’ composed of subject matter experts guide chapter development and provide information, and peer reviewers examine the data for accuracy to complete the report.
